"Pay the extra couple of bucks...these strings are well worth it!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound is clear and crisp...really helps the guitar's tone sing through! That tone mellows and lasts forever with these bad boys. I can get several practices and shows (at 3-4 hours per show) out of a set before they need replacing.
Don't know what you can say about features...they're coated, so they last and don't squeal (at least not NEARLY as much) like traditional strings during slides.
Ease of Use
Put them on and play...they sound great right out of the box, and keep sounding better. They're most definitely worth the $ to me.
They'll fray and get cruddy looking eventually. If you keep your hands clean when playing, they'll stay pretty longer, but it's not something I worry about. When they're all chewed up and start to go dead, I'll swap them out for new ones. I've played for years, in front of a lot of folks...I've tried other coated strings and have been sorely disappointed in their sound and longevity. For my money, these are the real deal!
Not the cheapest strings out there, but you get what you pay for and then some. Absolutely worth the extra $ over cheap strings that wear out in no time.
Never needed it...that's why I'm rating it a 10. The best support is the one you'll never need.
The Wow Factor
Sexy? Hmmm...well, I take them home with me after every show. What does that tell ya?
